OBJECTIVE: Photo Editing

I was recently director of development/admissions for private school while teaching yearbook, photography and videography until cut backs eliminated my position. My duties include writing, designing and publishing multiple brochures, forms and letters need to facilitate the student enrollment process. I toured prospective families and students and conducted their interview. I assembled all necessary records and assisted the families and students with their transfer and transition. I wrote and called families and students who were denied enrollment.

I developed and maintained databases for current students and alumni. I over-saw all aspects of marketing, public relation and events at the school, including press releases, coordinating with the media, set-up, volunteer staffing, clean up, entertainment, etc. I organized and over-saw all aspects of school fundraising. I am very experienced in all aspects of office management.

I also have broad experience in many phases of bookkeeping including: General Ledger through the Trial Balance in both accrual and cash based accounting, AP/AR, Journal Entries, Payroll, Cash Receipts, Bank Reconciliations, Cash Management, Invoicing, Expense Reimbursement, Expense Audit, Loan Payments & Investments, ACH/EFT/Wire Transfers.

I am excellent at working with stressed people, listening and communicating, building rapport, working in difficult situations, problem-solving, providing great customer service and accommodating change while being flexible, considerate, gracious, patient, courteous and always very professional. I’m reliable, consistent and get the job done. I work well with employees while guiding and leading them to successful complete their tasks in a comfortable but structured atmosphere. As the director of admissions I managed a staff 2 to 4 people and 6 to 10 additional part-time volunteers. I am experienced and casually educated as a leader and enjoy the challenges that it provides.

I’ve been an photographer for 20 years and am very proficient with Photoshop CS4 and other photography programs. Please review my work on Flickr at Distinctive Photography by Elizabeth as a reference. I have worked in school/yearbook photography for 6+ years and taught yearbook and photography for one year. I work well with deadlines and am self-motivated. I would greatly appreciate having an opportunity to learn more about this position.
